Traveling around Mexico buying for Peyote People I’ve had the unique opportunity to visit recluse villages, participate in ancient rituals and have befriended a number of different artists and their families. Here I will show you the faces behind the masks; a glimpse into the lives of the people that create the folk art you know and love. I will also be showcasing new arrivals and hope to keep people up to date with current events and other news pertaining to Wixarika (Huichol) and Mexican Folk Art in general. Gracias, Kevin Simpson Peyote People Juarez 222 Col. Centro Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Things are changing in Mexico. New infrastructure, cellular technology and computers are making villages once virtually cut off from the outside world much easier to connect with. This change can also be seen in the Folk Art, simple almost primitive carvings and paintings are being replaced by more intricate designs that incorporate animals and ideals that may not belong to the region. New colors and materials adapted from the outside world enable Indigenous and Mexican folk artists alike an exciting new way of expressing how their ancient traditions and beliefs fit into today’s modern world.
